Abstract

Development Centres (DCs) are an increasingly popular method of assessing key personnel to determine their development needs. They are also a highly visible and powerful organisational intervention which reveals an organisation′s core values and culture. This two‐part article focuses on DCs from two perspectives: first as a HR tool; and second as an organisation development intervention. Part 1 (here) examines what DCs are, what they comprise, the benefits, and key steps in establishing a centre. Part 2 (in the next issue) examines the linkages between three alternative DC models and both organisation culture and the business development cycle.
